Facing DWI Charges in Mendota Heights? Call on JS Defense.

Whether this is your first DWI or a subsequent DWI, being pulled over by the police is quite frightening. Your experience during that stop likely depended upon your past convictions, your blood alcohol level and whether you caused an accident with injuries or property damage. Whatever your situation is, I can help you. The sooner you call, the better able I’ll be to determine what your options are and how we will defend you against the charges you’re now facing.

The most important thing to remember is that your case is not a hopeless one. You have options and rights. And, you are not alone. People make the same mistakes regardless of their education, income or job. Minnesota is focused on preventing the loss of lives due to drunk driving accidents and officers do not discriminate in their enforcement procedures.

It’s best then to contact me as soon as possible to understand all of your options going forward. If you are in jail, I will do my best to get you out quickly. Then we will move forward to get you back to a normal life while navigating around these charges.

You Have Options

In some cases, it may be possible to get a DWI charge reduced to a careless driving charge, a minor traffic violation or a disorderly conduct charge. This is an especially helpful strategy for professionals who may be at risk for having their professional licenses suspended because of a DWI. It can also prevent problems getting insurance or help avoid increases in premium costs.

As well as trying to minimize the criminal consequences of the DWI charge on your criminal record, we will also work to keep your driver’s license in place. However, we must challenge the State’s ability to revoke your license automatically within a certain period of time after your arrest. If I am involved in your case right away, we will have a better opportunity to successfully retain some or all of your driving privileges. If this is a subsequent DWI for you and the State is trying to forfeit your vehicle, I can fight the forfeiture and work to get your vehicle back, but you must act quickly or you will loose the right to exercise this challenge.
